Silhouette Soft face lift threads

Silhouette Soft face lift threads represent a new technology with a double fold-over effect of lifting and regeneration by the activity of a bidirectional resorbable threads. Manufactured in the USA, Silhouette Soft is developed on the basis of a six-year experience in the use of suspension threads in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery.

About the procedure

Many people notice a slight sagging of their face and they want to lift it up at least a little. Silhouette Soft face lift threads offer you the opportunity to return the smile and the freshness that you so wish, without general anesthesia, a hospital stay and a long recovery time.

Fighting against the effects of aging at all costs involves skin renewal, but also facial shape. To achieve these two objectives, Silhouette Soft face lift threads combine two effects: lifting and regeneration.

The lifting effect is immediate and unobtrusive and is the result of lifting the tissue during the setting of threads. After inserting threads, doctor gently presses the treated area and thus forms the surface of the skin and makes it visibly smoothed.

The effect of regeneration is gradual and natural: polylactic acid (PLA), a basic ingredient of thread, is polymer known in the medical field for years (threads, orthopedic rods, screws and pins for bone fractures are made from PLA). The reason is that the polymer is particularly biocompatible with human beings and also biodegradable. After inserting threads, polylactic acid affects the deeper layers of the skin and naturally stimulates the body to produce its own collagen. This action, which continues through time, helps to increase the volume of sagging skin areas and gradually restores the natural shape of your face.

Silhouette Soft face lift threads is a revolutionary treatment for clients who are looking for a significant lifting without invasive surgery. This treatment is suitable for both men and women who want to achieve a younger look without the limitations of a traditional face lift. The treatment is ideal for correcting the signs of aging in the area of the nose and mouth, facial lines and cheeks. The results of this treatment last for 12-18 months.

Am I a candidate?

The best candidates for Silhouette Soft face lift threads are people in good physical condition, with a reasonably normal thickness of the skin. You will be a good candidate for Soft Silhouette if you already have undergone surgical face lifting, but sagging skin reappeared. Excellent candidates are younger people who want subtle changes on the forehead or cheeks, relaxed skin of jaw or neck, or those who want to delay the signs of aging.


You're a good candidate:

  • If you have sagging skin in the middle part of the face;
  • If you have a sagging jaw;
  • If you have sagging eyebrows;
  • If you experience sagging of neck skin;
  • If you experience loss of volume in your facial skin.

You are not the candidate for this treatment:

  • If you have excess skin in the area of the lower jaw caused by the thickness of the skin;
  • If you have excess skin caused by aging and thin skin;
  • If you have excess skin in the area of the lower jaw caused by hypertrophy due to aging;
  • If you have excessively thin skin as a result of the lack of fat tissue.

How do you prepare?

Silhouette Soft treatment does not require special preparation. However, we recommend that you discuss your expectations with doctor Bagatin and ask him everything you want to know before the treatment. Tell your doctor about all the treatments which you have previously undergone, as well as the medications you are currently taking.

During the procedure

Treatment alone takes about 60 minutes in the doctor's infirmary. Local anesthesia is used only in places where threads are inserted and where the same end. After application of local anesthesia, the doctor inserts threads under the skin at a depth of 3 to 5 millimeters. There is no need for cuts because threads are gently inserted with a needle. At the point resorbable pins retain them facing in opposite directions (bidirectional).

After applying threads, the doctor performs a slight compression of tissue in order to form it with the hands and achieve the desired lifting effect. The ends of threads that are not inserted into the skin are cut off. One or more threads can be applied, depending on the wishes of the patient, and the treated area. Silhouette Soft treatment can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in combination with dermal fillers and vistabel therapy.

Recovery time

After the procedure, it is necessary to adhere to a couple of practical instructions and modes of care in order to avoid influence of threads and their move from a place deep in the skin of the face and neck where they were placed. For example, you should avoid facial cleansing movements and powerful blows on the face, as well as the excessive opening of the mouth, and it is recommended to sleep on your back and make minimal facial movements. Three weeks after the treatment, there are no more restrictions, while normal activities like walking and sitting at a computer can already be performed within an hour after the procedure. Patients who underwent this treatment should approximately five days avoid vigorous exercise or activity.

Recommendations for faster recovery after procedure:

  • Put ice or cold compresses immediately after treatment, and hold them for 5 to 10 minutes;
  • In the case of pain, you can use analgesics;
  • During the first three nights  it is recommended to keep your head on an elevated, and during first  five it is recommended to sleep with your face toward the ceiling;
  • Clean and dry the face gently, without any rough movement five days after the procedure;
  • Gently wash your hair and gently apply make-up five days after the procedure;
  • If you shave your face do it with gentle movements five days after the procedure;
  • Avoid sunbathing and tanning bed two weeks after the procedure;
  • Avoid treatments and facial massages three weeks after the procedure;
  • Avoid sports, especially contact sports three weeks after the procedure;
  • Avoid saunas and baths three weeks after the procedure;
  • Do not undergo dental surgery three weeks after the procedure;
  • Avoid excessive facial movements while talking, chewing and yawning three weeks after the procedure.


Silhouette Soft is a simple treatment for performing. Complications are rare, and are less likely when the procedure is performed by experienced and trained surgeon.
